Abstract:
A measurement of the W+ and W− cross section in the electron channel is presented. The measurement is performed using data collected with the ATLAS experiment in 2011, amounting to an integrated luminosity of 4.58 fb−1. The centre of mass energy is √s = 7 TeV. The measurement is performed differentially in the electron pseudorapidity. The W charge asymmetry is also presented. The results are compared to theoretical predictions calculated at next-to-next-to-leading order in perturbative QCD using various Parton Distribution Functions.
